12th District Democrats Back Big Increases In Minimum Wage

Date: April 28, 2014

Wage Proposals Exceed Even Those Backed By President

At a debate of Democratic primary candidates running for the open 12th district of North Carolina seat, the five contenders all backed a significant increase in the federal minimum wage. While President Obama has called for raising the current rate from $7.25 to $10.10, the candidates generally supported raising the wage to at least $12 per hour, while two backed an increase all the way to $15. The narrow 12th district runs from Charlotte north to Greensboro, and is heavily Democratic. The winner of that party’s primary is almost guaranteed to win in the general election.
